Booked three Riley rooms so we were able to compare the inconsistencies. The rooms have a musty smell that one would associate with an older budget hotel but this is supposed to be a new boutique hotel so I don't know why that is possible. The interior design and grey lights make the place seem miserable. Two out of our... More

My stay was seriously impacted by a defective air conditioner that only worked weakly at the beginning of the night and quit entirely halfway through. Made sleeping very difficult. I stayed two nights; had planned to stay longer, but changed my mind. The building is pretty from the outside and it is set back from the road. White colonial style,... More

Hotel is about 5-10min walk from Jonker Street. The famous Capitol Satay Celup is just a stone throw away. Excellent service they have there. Staff is friendly and helpful. More importantly, they never fail to put on a smile. Two thumbs up! Keep it up! Room is a bit pricely but nice and clean! Need to improve on the breakfast... More

Our friends had booked us at this newly opened boutique hotel. It has a very colonial outlook. Rooms were decent. I had one twin room and a double room. Unfortunately the aircondition in the twin room was very poor. But the service from the staff made up for the bad experience. They put a powerful cooler in the room which... More

The hotel is somewhat hidden from the main road and you're able to avoid the jam that lead to Stadthuys and Jonker street. Ample of parking spaces for guests within the hotel compound. The downside of the car park is not shaded and not so convenient if raining. The room we had was spacious for 2 of us and the... More

It's a shame that the main hotel facade is hidden from the main street, because it is quite grand by Melaka standards. It's my second time in this culinary paradise (I've been last year) but my first time staying at this hotel with my family. There is free parking (uncovered and at your own risk), check-in was a breeze. The... More

Spacious and well lit lobby lends itself to a sense of grandeur without the freezing air-con (like in Hatten) or the stuffiness (like in Equatorial). Corridor to the room (at least the one where I stayed) are along the side of the building and therefore has a view to the green around the hotel. The Leyton room was comfortable and... More

To be honest, I wanted to stay in a place with a balcony beside the Melaka River but they were all booked out. As a result I came across The Sterling. The location is quite good as it's just a 2-3 minute walk to Christ Church Melaka and the beginning of Jonker Walk. The hotel is clean and reasonably modern... More
